The Canowindra Wrap with Love group are calling for more knitters to join their group. The group meet on the fourth Thursday of every month at the Canowindra HACC office at 10am in Gaskill St.
There are millions of people world-wide suffering extreme cold. So in 1992 Wrap with Love began with the idea to help as many people as possible by providing warm wraps and blankets to ward off hypothermia. Since then, more than 414,000 people have been wrapped with love and warmth, in Australia and around the World.
The aid is delivered to needy countries, some experiencing extreme poverty or other natural disasters, some involved in war through the network of non-government aid organisations.
Wrap with Love is a not-for-profit organisation who reply solely on donations. Any donations of 8ply wool or 100% acrylic can be left at the HACC office at any time. Only last week a nice donation of wool was left at the office by someone from Orange.
The knitted squares for the wraps and blankets are made with 8ply wool and measure 10×10” or 25x25cm, with 28 assembled squares creating one whole warm wrap.
Last year the Canowindra group knitted 72 wraps and are hoping to make even more in 2018. It is a lovely morning catching up and having a chat with friends while knitting. For more information call Nina on 6344 1213 or Dawn on 0427 441 272.
